Diversified Drainage

Diversified Drainage is a full service drainage company, providing solutions for ponding water, soft or saturated soil, excessive patio or deck post heaving due to freezing in winter, waterproofing foundations to stop water infiltration. There are usually 5-6 Employees working during the season including the 2 owners who have 30 plus years of combined experience in drainage solutions. The scope of our job size on the smaller scale is $1000.00 and up as we use mostly specialized equipment and trained employees our mobilization costs are at the least a few hundred dollars. We may sub-contract out services that others are better able to perform than us in some situations like patching asphalt, underground boring, and bolder landscape walls. All payments are due upon completion and generally will collect payment onsite. For special promotions and financing options ask your rep.

They won't even discuss a rough estimate without you paying them $89 to come to your house. I understand that there are many factors in each job and it really depends on a project by project basis, but no way will I pay $89 for a rough estimate on a small job.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Won't even talk to you unless you pay them $89

They said they could take care of it today. Today the technician showed up and told me that they couldn't use the jetter until Tuesday. I actually had to cut short a famil...

Well - first machine broke but he replaced it quickly and had it unclogged within an hour. Also helped us try to figure out where drain connections are - without charging for extra time/service.
